Autism is a neurological disorder that affects the brain and is mostly genetic. The first symptoms appear already at the childhood stage and actually last until the end of life.
Autism is characterized by a lack of reaction on the part of the child to commands, no play with peers, difficulties in expressing emotions or communication using both gestures and speech. We often perceive the behavior of an autistic child as strange.
This disorder has many varieties, it happens that the child simply develops more slowly – which is often confused with autism.
Although there are many factors that increase the risk of autism, there are still no specific causes for it.
